Letter of Invitation

Hi Everyone,

I am attempting to get to Simferopol or Sevastopol on the Crimean peninsula for August 4th. I am running into a few problems and am hoping someone can assist me.

1) My ideal route would be by sea from Varna (Bulgaria) or Constata (Romania) are there any options that are easy to get. Cost? If not are there buses that take you the long way around?

2) I am Australian and am attempting to obtain a Visa although I need a Letter of Invitation approved by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. As I am backpacking I am unsure who would issue this.

Any help would greatly assist me.

Hi BobbyJ_S and welcome to Ukraine forum :)

Since relatively recently,

"Short-term visa can be issued without submission of letter of invitation to enter Ukraine for citizens of Australia...":

Also discussed and confirmed by other Australians here: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g294473-i3662-k574…

Self-promotion and solicitation is against TA forum posting guidelines.
